Proverbs 12:17-22 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

17 He that speaketh truth sheweth forth righteousness:
    but a false witness deceit.

18 There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword:
    but the tongue of the wise is health.

19 The lip of truth shall be established for ever:
    but a lying tongue is but for a moment.

20 Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine evil:
    but to the counsellors of peace is joy.

21 There shall no evil happen to the just:
    but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.

22 Lying lips are abomination to the Lord:
    but they that deal truly are his delight.
